To TDF developers, marketing partners, and other interested parties:
TDF (Concord, MA) has always championed systems-on-silicon (remember our DAC motto: TDF, the past path to silicon systems). That is why we have joined the Virtual Socket Interface (VSI) alliance. VSI, formed recently with a nucleus of top semiconductor and EDA companies, plans to address issues in using multiple cores to construct complex integrated circuits.
TDF realizes that not all of its development and marketing partners will be able to participate in VSI directly. Therefore, we offer to represent your interests as a TDF intellectual property core partner at VSI meetings and in working groups. We see the following as some of the advantages for you:
1. TDF will advise you on developments, issues, decisions, and other news as soon as they happen.
2. TDF will keep you informed about technical developments, and will seek your input on them.
3. With your input, TDF will be the best-informed voice in VSI regarding RTL core development and use; we will form our views with the assistance of a significantly large portion of the core developer community, and they will be respected accordingly.
As we begin regularly communicating with you about VSI, please feel free to keep in contact with TDF about issues, concerns, or simply questions regarding VSI or TDF's involvement with VSI.
I hope to hear from you soon.
